The Agriculture Department (USDA) has launched a new web site to help farmers and ranchers learn more about the new farm bill.

The site features farm program details, program applications and signup forms. Advanced electronic forms help applicants process benefits faster.

The Web site can be directly accessed from www.usda.gov/farmbill or by clicking on the 2002 farm bill icon on USDA's main Web site at www.usda.gov.
